Plotkin and Orenstein

This is a very serious heavy textbook on vaccines and is frequently cited in many review articles. The chapters are organized after each vaccine and include descriptions of the wild type diseases and the vaccines to combat them. This is a very useful book for anyone looking on technical information on specific vaccines and considered a gold standard source. Essential for Public Health workers, Pediatricians and travel clinic. Because of its great size and cost it may be more sensible to refer to this from your local medical library.
